O&W Trail - PA

Review for Upper Trail North of StillWater

May, 2022 by ckinnpa

ON 5/16 with a storm coming in from South, I started out at Orson pond and headed south. Trail conditions are very choppy as this end is pretty much ATV's are the prime users of this section of trail. At about 1/2 mile as you get into woods, the trail begins to smooth out on the edges. The biggest draw back is missing the great scenery on both sides of the trail as you must stay mindful of the trail conditions and constantly finding a smooth path. Also noteworthy is the width of the trail is almost double most rail trails. So sharing this with ATV makes for easy passing. Ended up at StillWater in a bout 90 minutes. Also - there are no markings on this end for miles as all signage is for ATV community. I did not see anyone this day and did not see a single Cycle track, so if you want solitude - this run works.

D&L Trail

Trail closed in both directions at White Haven

March, 2022 by kwing64

Driving west on I-80, we chose this trail as our midday recreation stop, and were looking forward to discovering the gorge. So we were very disappointed to find it closed in both directions at White Haven. Reconstruction? No information seemed available, and the local bike shop was also closed. Guess we should have read the trail reviews more carefully; I don't remember seeing anything about this closure in the Trail Details.

Greater Hazleton Rails to Trails

Nice Trail, Well Maintained

November, 2021 by gennatesw

I went (mountain) biking in the trail, which I found to be very smooth and enjoyable, with not too many hills along the ride. I was surprised with how well maintained and smooth the path was, I expected to find some washed out spots and/or downed tree limbs, but seriously didn’t run into a single bump along the path. Saw a few people early on, but then had the trail mostly to myself, even on a Saturday. Great job by the service that upkeeps the path! Will definitely be coming back.

D&L Trail

Great ride north from Glen Onoko, with a few caveats...

October, 2021 by jsshoemaker826

Oct 11, 2021. Parked in Glen Onoko parking lot. Lots of parking, but we could not find any toilets anywhere. Seems like with all that parking for visitors, the town or park should at least provide some porta-potties. We rode north for about 15 miles. Almost all of the trail was in great condition. There were a few spots near Glen Onoko with very loose fill that required walking (32 mm wide tires). Very nice scenery, and not crowded on a holiday Monday. Nice facilities at the Rockport trailhead. Overall a great ride!

Susquehanna Warrior Trail

this trail needs maintained.

September, 2021 by lowtoyonair

I rode the trail today near the nuclear power plant and it was poorly maintained. The gravel was very loose, a lot of fallen tree debris and quite muddy. I traveled on the trail north about 2.5 miles and gave up. I traveled back along US11 and then rode around the trails at the river flatlands which were a bit better. I guess I am spoiled with my local trails (York Heritage and NW Lancaster Co Rail Trail)

D&H Rail Trail

Nice trail but could easily be a great trail

September, 2021 by taztlz1958

Started in Carbondale on the Lackawanna Trail and continued seamlessly to the D&H. Trail was nice compacted cinders as described up to Ararat trailhead, trail was nice continuous uphill climb at about 1-2% barely noticeable. Last mile or two to Ararat increased to maybe 3% and was noticeable. The scenery along this stretch was varied and beautiful with small lakes an Stillwater Lake which is dammed.

From Ararat to Starrucca Viaduct is also as advertised, minimum is Hybrid with suspension, the one review that said he did it without suspension must have reverberated for weeks. This stretch is downhill and would be very difficult riding the other way the downhill grade helped overcome the friction of the uncompacted gravel.

The big disappointment came as we neared the Viaduct, the trail markings almost diminished and alternate paths made it confusing we ended up riding into town and onto town roads to the Viaduct. The Viaduct should be a highlight for this trail and unless you start there which is not recommended you could struggle to find it.

The section north of the viaduct to NY was almost impossible to find and poorly maintained dirt trail, NY line wasn't even marked, total waste of time.

Joseph M. McDade Recreational Trail

Trail Description is not very accurate

September, 2021 by taztlz1958

Started at Milford Beach expecting a basically downhill ride. From Milford Beach to Dingmans Campground many stretches were unrideable and needed to walk bike up and down steps and steep slopes. The only positive in this stretch was that Raymondskill Falls was a short uphill walk from the trail and worth the view. By the time we got to Dingman Falls I did not have the energy left to afford another side excursion. Trail for flat sections was basically compacted cinders, the steep sections were dirt hiking trails. From Dingmans Campground to Hialeah the trails meanders up and down as well as sideways several steep cinder sections with one sign missing that almost caused a calamity. Steep drop with sharp right turn at bottom onto a bridge. Bridge was not visible until bottom and carrying to much speed right turn is not possible. Three choice run in stream, hit tree or exposed tree roots.

The trail is not recommended for street bikes and absolutely need MTB or Hybrid with suspension north of Dingmans Campground. From Hialeah to Dingmans required several side tours on to roadways, twice on Highway. Many flat stretches but also some pretty hefty grades in this run.

Bushkill Township Trail

Short and Mellow

August, 2021 by welleslobb

While nobody’s going to rave about a two-mile trail, the Bushkill offers a pleasant, easy entry into Jacobsburg State Park, with additional trails for exploring inside the park. For maximum variety, start your ride or hike from the well identified Moorestown Road trailhead. The Bushkill is short and mellow and is best used as a connector trail to Jacobsburg.
